I'm getting my first chickens next spring (I live in Michigan). I just discovered that my neighbors plan on doing the same! Pretty cool. But I was wondering if there would be a problem if we put our coops side-by-side in our unfenced yards. It would make helping each other out easier, but I didn't know if the chickens would react badly to such an arrangement. We don't plan to free range. They have seven dogs so no way. Thanks for any advice! Oh, and coop sharing is another possible idea, but I'm concerned about remaining "good neighbors" under such a plan.
